At first I thought was just a bass drum, i. Maazel with the small town community orchestra in the gazebo. Listening to it later, at a decent volume on my home system, I guess I can concede it is a cannon, albeit a very wimpy one--the most ladylike and reserved cannon I've ever heard in an finale.
It still sounds like a gentle bass drum, but listening very carefully it does have a very faint, spiraling 'exit plume' that is not the decay of a drumbeat. And they all sound exactly the same, which means someone is just hitting a button on a soundboard. This is not like that at all. I suppose it isn't a crime. It's just underwhelming.

What is most interesting is that Maazel has been a little creative with period technology. He has the percussionists shaking big pieces of sheet metal to achieve a thundering effect. I have never heard it that way and I do like it. It goes extremely well with the music. However, I don't think I will listen again. Maazel plays 'Wellington's Victory' overall so slowly and strangely, I really am not interested in hearing it again. It is mostly aggravating rather than rewarding.
That is really quite dis-satisfying. Even though it is all just noise, I would still prefer to know for my own enjoyment, what exactly they're doing. I don't know why it has to be a secret. I would not advise anyone to waste their time and money on this recording, more because of the strange tempo-shifting Wellington's Victory, rather than the anemic It is very easy to give recommendations if you would like any.
